You can always get stuck in her beehive or be taken aback by some of her manners. However, in so riding on the surface of the lady, you will be losing out on the real deal, the real her. She’s not just a voice, she’s a feeling, unapolegitically betraying and exorcising every string of raw emotion within, no matter how unpretty and almost, seemingly, brushing against the derisory. She’s not a simple technique but an uncalculated and authentic talent. Her personality stamps her song with a wittingly clever (yet subtle) lyric and a rendition that imposes its style and makes each song unique and her own. She is Amy Winehouse.
Amy Winehouse in ten songs:
1. Rehab – With lines that reference two of her musical inspirations, Ray Charles and Donny Hathaway, Amy pens this autobiographical song in 6mns which gives some thought to modern and old addictions alike in order maybe to help exorcise her own demons. 2. Valerie Her interpretation of this song originally by the Zutons confirms Amy Winehouse as a brilliant performer 3. Love is a Losing Game 4. Me & Mr Jones 5. You Know I’m No Good 6. Tears Dry On Their Own 7. October Song 8. In My bed 9. Know You Now 10. Back To Black
